The man then began to struggle with Sergeant Sukstorf and two backup officers. They were able to subdue the man and transport him to the hospital. A short time later the man again started struggling with the officers and was subdued again.

Despite feeling ill, Sergeant Sukstorf returned to patrol but collapsed about 30 minutes later.
